Local Artist Sylvie Rosenthal to Speak at UNC Asheville's Craft Campus Lecture Series
Mon, 02/02/2009 - 12:00am
UNC Asheville's Craft Campus will continue its year-long lecture series, "Meet the Maker: Conversations of Meaning with Craftspeople," with a talk by noted local artist Sylvie Rosenthal at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 10, in UNC Asheville's Owen Hall, room 237. The event is free and open to the public.
Rosenthal, a noted woodworker and sculptor, studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology's School for American Crafts, where she received a bachelor in fine arts. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States, and she has taught as a visiting artist at schools such as San Diego State University and Tainan National University of the Arts. When crafting her pieces, Rosenthal says she "constructs by blending traditions of European woodworking, folk-art, and pulp fiction." This year, Rosenthal received a North Carolina Council Crafts Fellowship award. She currently maintains a studio in Asheville.
